Environmental factors, years of sun exposure, heredity and age can all impact patients’ skin tone. Fortunately, there’s photorejuvenation, a popular treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat freckles, age spots, sun spots, rosacea and vascular lesions on the face, chest, arms and hands that can be all too bothersome and prominent to patients.
Photorejuvenation using IPL is a non-invasive treatment that delivers light energy to the skin. The light energy specifically targets brown (age spots, sun spots freckles) and red (facial veins and rosacea) and is absorbed into the skin by the unwanted pigment to eradicate it without impacting surrounding skin. Treatments can be performed in under 20 minutes and typically a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
IPL is an effective treatment on a variety of skin types, but Dr. Kujok will assess your individual skin type to determine if IPL is an appropriate treatment and provide a customized treatment plan.
Following the treatment, you may resume normal activities and will be advised to keep out of direct sun and protect your skin with an SPF for the next few days. Temporary darkening of any treated brown pigment should be expected, but soon will slough away to reveal an improved and clearer skin tone.
At NorCal Medical & Aesthetic Center, Dr. Kujok and his team use Cynosure’s IPL system which is the gold-standard in photorejuvenation technology.
